His innings of 78 off just 27 balls felt like a desert storm at the Wankhede Stadium on Sunday, but the cool and composed Delhi Capitals wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant did not wish to make much fuss about the innings that changed the course of the game and knocked Mumbai Indians out of the match.
Speaking at the end of the game, Pant put his whirlwind knock to the need of the hour as Delhi needed someone to up the ante at that stage of the innings, after Shikhar Dhawan and Colin Ingram had provided the platform for a flourish to the finishing line.
“I always bat according to the situation all the time. Today when I came in, I had to up the ante and so took my chances. It came off tonight,” he smiled.
